$350,000 Over Asking in Chevy Chase
The competition was likely high for this five-bedroom home in Chevy Chase, which ultimately sold for $350,000 above the original asking price.

The kitchen has a marble-topped breakfast bar island with matching countertops and matching backsplash between the stainless steel hood and the stove. The adjacent family room also has a gas fireplace, and in between, a door leads out to the deck.
